The Pilates Community Supports Breast Cancer Awareness Month

The Pilates Community Supports Breast Cancer Awareness MonthOur industry is doing so much good this October for National Breast Cancer Awareness month. Many organizations and studios are offering programs and donating money to support Breast Cancer research.

Peak Pilates sets a good example by donating $1 to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Research Foundation for every person that signs up to their community website.

We at Pilates Digest have decided to follow their lead and donate $1 to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation for every new subscriber we get for our newsletter in October, so spread the word!

Mari Winsor has a Pilates for Pink (add link) workout DVD which donates $1 from each sale to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation®.

Pilates Classic has an entire line of Movement Heals products where 15% of the sales are donated to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

The Just b Method Pilates & Movement Arts will take $2 off any DVD ordered this month and donate an additional $2 to breast cancer research this month.

Pilates Academy International is hosting a Pink Ribbon Pilates Workshop on Friday, October 24, which helps in working with women who have survived breast cancer.

Locally, our studio, The Fitness Studio of Orlando is donating to and supporting “Making Strides against Breast Cancer” by encouraging our clients to walk and donate money as well. Most communities have a walk or run that supports Breast Cancer Research happening in October.

Many local studios have participated Shape Magazine’s Pilates for Pink campaign.
